Paris Protesters
« on: March 28, 2006, 07:24:41 PM »
What is the deal with these people?  Supposedly most universities in Paris are shut down, and transportation is also becoming subject to strikes--all because the government is trying to make it easier for companies to fire workers WITHIN TWO YEARS FROM WHEN THOSE WORKERS GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE.

First of all, that doesn't seem like a big concession to make.  Second of all, when are Europeans going to wake up and realize that they have to work for a living?  The welfare states that European countries have been forming for years cannot survive forever without investment, and companies won't continue to invest in countries that make it so difficult to hire/fire workers. 

If every measure toward economic freedom is met with such violent opposition, how can France and other semi-socialist European countries ever improve their ailing economies?

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

Anyone want to place a wager on when the French government surrenders?  Since that seems to be their thing and all.

They decided to intervene against Britain, making American independence possible.

We are their only challenger for role-model, and they are our only challenger. That's why things get tense between us.
